  • Notes 
    • "The cemetery, now called St. Anthony's, was originally a Protestant cemetery, later bought by the Catholic Church. The old part of it is still referred to as the Old Protestant Cemetery. Benjamin is buried there, and probably his wife Rachel." [Find a Grave page for Benjamin Wright, citation details below.]
